‘Confused It’ Brittany Novotny’s Saucy Response to Oklahoma’s Sally Kern

With only 50 days left before the election, supporters of anti-gay Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern called her transgender opponent Brittany Novotony “a confused it”. So Novotony issued a scathing response basically calling Kern an irresponsible extremist. It is a zinger alright, but why didn’t Novotny do some other obvious things like apply for Lesbian and Gay Victory Fund support that could have put more queers in her corner?

According to Novotny she decided to forgo the Victory Fund to conduct her campaign without her opponent claiming that “out of state interests” had interfered in the election. To receive Victory Fund support, Novotny would also have had to made a case for her electoral viability in the state’s 84th district, an allotment of time Novotny instead spent fundraising and building her constituent base.

A red state candidate, Novotny is focusing in on three core issues: jobs, education, and commerce. In contrast Kern’s “issues” page includes conservative red meat such as “sanctity of life”, “traditional marriage”, and establishing English as the official state language (instead of their native Cherokee).

The implicit suggestion is that Novotny doesn’t care about these same issues. Instead Novotny contends they’re not the issues effecting actual Sooners hit hard by the economy. Nevertheless, Novotny made sure to release a recent web ad in which she espouses her love for the constitution and declares “My values are Oklahoma values.”

That’s great, but does District 84 share Novotny’s economic values or will they go after Kern’s “moral” red meat? T-50 days and the clock goes tick-tock.

      FWIW, in French, a girl is an “it”; the neuter article is used for the word “girl”. Then again, penises are feminine and vaginas are masculine.

      I was a little disappointed when Brittany’s campaign did not place her gender identity in the forefront of this contentious battle since Kern’s is so intent on disemboweling LGBT people. But as time went on Brittany did what transpeople have learned everywhere, it’s the highroad to victory. So she has kept her focus in the campaign the betterment of Oklahomans and let Kern’s dirty herself.

      Way to go sister!

      I certainly won’t vote for a Freak, that’s for sure! Why do you think America is going downhill at such a rapid pace? Because we have been kicking God out of our lives, out of schools, out of the public arena, everywhere is God condemned nowdays so America is suffering. When we follow God’s Word, things go much better. All you have to do is follow God’s Word and your life is fine. God condemns Homosexuality, so it is wrong. And it is especially wrong when you go against God and make yourself a different sex! Sickening! But, for the Demons, it is an everyday occurence, tossing God’s Word out the window, doing the perverted, voting for the LIES! Oh well, today is the day and we will know by tonight!

      Kick Butt, Ms Kern!

      There is no God.

      God has no place in government, just as facts have no place in religion.
